10 Cool Ways to Upcycle Plastic
Sure, you can throw your milk jugs and two-liter bottles in the recycling bin, but why not upcycle plastic? Turn it into home decor and useful gadgets that save money and satisfy your creative side! With some imagination and a few crafting supplies, a spray bottle can become a makeup basket, a soda bottle is transformed into a garden sprinkler, and that plastic milk jug a votive candle holder.
Many of these ten DIY crafts are perfect for children as they offer a fun lesson in conservation. (Make sure to tell them Americans throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour!) And many are useful substitutes for things you could buy at a store. When they’ve outlived their usefulness, you know where to put them.
